PARIS Saint-Germain (PSG) forward, Kylian Mbappe, has said that he will take the side of Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba, in his ongoing rift with his brother, wherein Pogba’s brother alleged that he asked a witch doctor to cast a spell on Mbappe.
“I don’t think it will alter my relationship with him,” Mbappe said during the news conference prior to PSG’s Tuesday Champions League match against Juventus."
He added; “As of today, I prefer to trust the word of a teammate. He called me, he gave me his version of the story and as of today, it is his word against his brother’s word. So I will trust my teammate, in the best of interest of the national team as well.
"We have a big competition coming up. He has some issues at the moment so it is not the moment to add to them for him and that’s it. We will see what happens. I am pretty detached about it.”
Mbappe, also revealed that Pogba reached out to him amid the extortion scandal currently under criminal investigation by French prosecutors. French prosecutors are investigating allegations that Pogba was the target of extortion by his elder brother Mathias Pogba and his childhood friends.
They allegedly demanded €13million from the France midfielder.
